PHIL PARKINSON is happy to play a waiting game when it comes to new signings but says he will "go all out" to get the players he really wants.

Wrexham enjoyed a record-breaking 2022-23 National League campaign, culminating in automatic promotion and return to the Football League following a 15-year absence.

Parkinson insists his squad does not need 'major surgery' ahead of the new League Two campaign which kicks off on Saturday August 5 and has put the emphasis on quality rather than quantity.

Talks are on-going with players but Parkinson is yet to complete his first new signing of the summer.

And although he would like to make additions before Wrexham return for pre-season training later this month, the Reds' boss accepts he will have to be patient if he wants to land his top targets.

"We have spoken to a lot of players and we are in discussions with clubs," said Parkinson.

"Like I keep saying, we have got a good squad and to get better players than the ones we have already got is really tough.

"If two or three players become available which we want and which we feel will really improve the squad, then of course we will go all out to get them.

"We have targeted the ones we want and we are in discussions with those clubs but at this time of the year, things take time for many different reasons.

"Ideally, every manager wants the whole squad together prior to pre-season but that never happens.

"We are best off waiting for the players we really want, knowing that the squad is strong as it stands.

"We are going into pre-season with a core of really good players and I am looking forward to touching base with them all when we are back in on June 29."
